I got into Accounting & Finance at Leicester (missed getting into Cass by one grade, and the remark didn't make a difference). I want to be an investment banker. Before I get all the sh*t about how it's impossible to get into IB unless I go to Oxford/Cambridge/LSE/Imperial etc...I've heard it all before. But if I don't try my absolute best with what I've got, I'll never even stand a chance.
So I was just wondering if there's a more appropriate course at Leicester which would give me more of an edge on getting into IB (again, I know it's all about which uni you go to, but I need to make sure I've covered all my shortcomings as much as possible, so if a different course at Leicester increases my chances even by a tiny amount, I'll switch).
Also, do any of you guys know anyone who's gotten into IB from Leicester/any uni which wasn't one of Oxbridge/LSE/Imperial/Warwick? If so, please could you ask them how they got in and PM me to let me know, or send me some way to contact them as I'd like to get in touch.
Lastly, if anyone has any other advice which would help me get in from Leicester, please let me know. However, at the moment, my primary question is what's the best course I could do at Leicester to get me into IB?
And actually passed?
